Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. At the rate at which you are going it is hard for me to understand, but my concern is for the translators who seem to be melting into the earpiece. I wonder if you would take them into consideration please.

The Deputy Speaker

The translators have the advantage of having an order paper with the list on it, and so does the hon. member. Perhaps if he stuck with the order paper he would be able to follow rather easily.

I am reluctant to take up a great deal of the time of the House going through the same form because these bills are all in exactly the same form.

Liberal

Derek Lee Scarborough—Rouge River, ON

Mr. Speaker, given the repetitiveness of the proceeding, as is required by the rules, I wonder if there would be consent in the House to allow the request of the member for Ottawa Centre so that we might dispense with the repetitive introduction of each bill on the same subject. Perhaps the Speaker could request if there is now a disposition for unanimous consent.

Gilles-A. Perron Saint-Eustache—Sainte-Thérèse, QC

Mr. Speaker, I am having a hard time following what the interpreter is saying. I have no idea what you are talking about. You are going much too fast.

The Deputy Speaker

I would encourage the hon. member to refer to his copy of today's Order Paper. All the bills, and their titles, are listed, which makes it very easy to follow.

Jay Hill Prince George—Peace River, BC

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I respect the fact that all members have the advantage of having the order paper to look at to see what it is you are referring to, but we have an enormous following that watches the proceedings through the television camera. They do not have the advantage of that and they are trying to follow, with I am sure rapt attention, what you are doing and saying. I think they would be having the same difficulty.
